Read full description of the books:
Elana is a member of a supremely advanced interstellar civilization, on a mission to the medieval planet Andrecia. To her shock, she becomes the key to a dangerous plan to turn back an invasion by an aggressive, space-faring "Youngling" species. How can she possibly help the Andrecians, who still believe in magic and superstition, without revealing her alien powers?
Apprentice Medical Officer Jarel knows that the Imperial Exploration Corps doesn't consider the Andrecians to be human, and he has seen the atrocious treatment the natives get from his people. How can Jarel make a difference, when he alone regrets the destruction his people bring?
Georyn, son of an Andrecian woodcutter, knows only that there is a dragon on the other side of the enchanted forest, and he is prepared to do whatever it takes to defeat it. To him, Elana is the Enchantress from the Stars who has come to test him, to prove his is worthy....

Read information about the authorAlthough she is best known as an author for Young Adults, Sylvia Engdahl's most recent novels, the Hidden Flame duology (Stewards of the Flame and Promise of the Flame) and the Rising Flame duology (Defender of the Flame and Herald of the Flame) are not YA books and are not appropriate for middle-school readers. These two duologies are quite different from each other and some readers prefer the second one; they need not be read in order. They are enjoyed by people who don't ordinarily read science fiction as well as those who do. For more information about them, watch the video trailer and visit her website. She welcomes comments from her readers.
Previously she wrote six novels for teens that are also enjoyed by many adults, all of which were first published in the 1970s by Atheneum and which have been republished in both hardcover and paperback editions by different publishers in the 21st century. All except her Newbery Honor book Enchantress from the Stars were updated; particularly important in terms of relevance to today's readers are the revisions to The Far Side of Evil and Journey Between Worlds. Her trilogy Children of the Star (consisting of This Star Shall Abide, Beyond the Tomorrow Mountains, and The Doors of the Universe) was republished in a single volume as adult science fiction. All her novels except Enchantress are currently available in ebook editions.
She has also written a nonfiction book, The Planet-Girded Suns: The History of Human Thought About Extrasolar Worlds, of which updated and expanded paperback and ebook editions were published in 2012. Most of the nonfiction books listed under her name were edited, rather than written, by her as a freelance editor of anthologies for high schools.
Engdahl says, "I list only a few of the books I read here. Those that appear are just some of the best ones about subjects I deal with in my novels."
